The U.S. military carried out a missile strike in Somalia on Sunday targeting a suspected militant leader with ties to al-Qaida and al-Shabaab, a U.S. military official told Reuters, speaking on condition of anonymity.

The strike took place in southern Somalia, the official said, without offering further information, including the identity of the suspect or whether the strike was believed to have been successful.
